Easter is less than two weeks away and in anticipation, I’m hopping down the bunny trail for an Easter Tablescape Blog Hop! You’ll find Easter table inspiration from 25 table stylists this week at the bottom of this post.
I took a departure from previous years’ Easter tablescapes and a pastel palette in favor of a table that’s different for me . . . one that’s ‘black and white with bunnies all over’!
The table inspiration came from a set of black and white polka dot bunny and chick salad plates purchased on clearance from MacKenzie-Childs a couple of years ago.
They’re served up on black and white striped plates and a black and white tablecloth with bunnies, that hopped in my cart at HomeGoods.
Chicks are hatching. . .
And bunnies are blooming at the table in anticipation of Easter.
To arrange the flowers and support the stems in the bunny baskets, I used a favorite flower arranging tool and method, chicken wire, as the wire is reusable.
Baskets are filled with fragrant hyacinths, speckled eggs and stems of Charmelia, known for its long-lasting vase life.
Pots of muscari, commonly known as grape hyacinths, are blooming in a tureen. . .
I recycled mini pots of the hyacinths from my Spring Bulbs and Blooms.
To make the centerpiece, I lined the tureen with plastic bags and removed the hyacinths from their plastic pots.
Green Spanish moss provides a decorative layer and filler to conceal the soil and to nestle and ‘hide’ black and white capiz eggs. Lindt mini milk chocolate chicks and bunnies provide an edible treat tucked in among the hyacinths blooms.
Our Easter celebration usually takes place at my sister-in-law’s house with extended family celebrating and eating together. We’ll be enjoying a quiet celebration at home this year to self-isolate with a mandated stay at home order through April 29th to help flatten the curve. All the more reason to do something that brings you joy, like set a pretty table, even there are only two of you dining at home!
